Snapshot of development applications, 1-Jan-2016

1501 Commercial Drive

New Category of Development Applications introduced for Medical Marijuana-Related Use

As a free public service we take a monthly snapshot of the Development Applications listed on the City of Vancouver website. Our count of “DE” numbers for January 1, 2016 shows 99 items listed (down from 155 last month). Of the total, 10 are “concurrent with rezoning,” which could mean they are being fast-tracked under Rental 100. Three are revised, one is on hold, and some may have also had a change of address.

The City has introduced a new category of Development Applications for Medical Marijuana-Related Uses. The City’s website shows a total of 9 applications; however, we note that there is at least a 10th application at 1501 Commercial Drive (pictured).

(We also take rezoning application snapshots. Search for “rezoning” and “snapshot” in the CityHallWatch search field.) If you are concerned about an application and would like to publicize it or get more info, send us an e-mail at, and we might be able to look deeper. The following information is simply copied as text from the City’s site. Many links will stop working over time. For current list, click:
